This work does not recognize the religious mode
of comprehending the human soul that is inspired by god as the sole
determining factor of a mind.
Religion shows all the earmarks of the advocators of
the primacy of idea over matter,
the antithesis between ideas and matter, the god-guided material movements
of nature and others which are of human heads behave approximately in a
manner dubbed the illusory-delusory transformation characteristic of every
religious ideation. The work
presupposes the fact that they are functions of the human brain.
The ideating processes of the brain in so far as they are functions,
play a role similar to the breathing processes of the respiratory organ or
any other processes of the human organs. The phony in religion and idealism
must be reckoned, although it is a mass of concentration of mind clouds
floating in the human body capable of periodic emanation to make a
psychological state mystically
Idea is the finest matter with
matter as the denomination.
This would invert many views about the spiritual exposition in the
In particular, the manuscript is a philosophical
treatment on the various phenomenological forms of material-reflection, to
wit, the reflecting processes of ideation of the brain.
It is committed to espouse the non-possessiveness of idea-product
(freedom of intellectual possession) of which only the elite supposes the
correct idea. This, the work
recognize it as false.
Conversely, it recognizes the possessive nature of the idea-product as a
relationship of the product to the producer, and as intellectual property
but certainly not as monopoly.
It also seeks to draw a line of demarcation to
distinguish those forms of idea-product typical of the material being of the
descendant of man whose transient internal movements have ultimately
realized in the embodiment of the modern man.
This distinction is inevitable as there is a qualitative difference
in function and in structure of the existing and the transformed form of
this descent of species. The
idea-form, which we possess for the nonce, which arises out from the process
of ideating and which in turn must depend on the physical constraint of the
functioning brain, must have something to do with the evolution of the
structure and function of the brain.
The activity of the nerve cells within the embodiment of our
ancestors is conceived as the necessary condition and factor that has
developed via the passage of the production and reproduction of life (via
the seeds of life) to an essentially higher level.
This level is in us at present, and it conditions the performance of
our brains. The ideating
processes of man and man’s ancestor are two qualitatively different kinds of
processes performed by two qualitatively different kinds of nervous system
from the two different beings - the ape-like Homo sapiens and the modern man
(Homo sapiens sapiens).
Therefore, the idea-products are not identical in essence - they are
Whereas, within the same species, the variation of idea-product and its
forms takes the character of quantitative alteration, here amongst different
species the variation has ultimately become qualitative in character.
In other words, within the same species, the variation of
idea-products and their forms takes the character of quantitative variation.
It becomes qualitatively different when a new species has evolved out
of the old one. Different
species of living beings develop different means of communication, different
idea-forms and therefore different idea-products.
The idea-product of an ape does not exist but some minds are present
in our apes although they are not the idea-product proper.
The distribution of the concept of idea-product
as a possession of species in general is not fully justified for it is
doubted whether the ancestor of man is capable of genuine ideation as with
modern man. It is appears that
this is not genuinely possible.
From this conviction, the term idea-product is to be restricted only to man
whilst the term reflex-product
is conceived as those products of reflexation which are as yet idea-products
and are natured to the lower species, and also to a great extent natured to
the lower psychological dimensions of modern man.
The content of the idea-product is internally
perceptible ........ It presents
itself as a special kind of internal phenoumenal form (internal appearance)
which is developmental essentially.
The ideas expressed by the theory of the psychic events imply the
existence of phenoumenal forms include feelings (inner pain, sadness,
happiness, etc.), images, internally materialized form of consciousness,
inner language, etc. These are
essentially the functional forms of material-reflection, not solid matter
which are perceptible through the five proper channels of the external
sensing organs. Idea-product is
perceptible as the inner language in the internally materialized form of
consciousness, thus, when Hegel wrote the science of logic he has relied on
this fact. Reflex-product has no
inner language as its embodiment.
material-reflection is used in this work in contradistinction
with the word material-interaction
which is a characteristic property of inanimate matter.
Material-reflection is a characteristic property of animate matter,
the matter that possesses life and has been the study of the biological
sciences. This work, however,
only analyses in condensed form the material-reflection of man by
